JUST WHEN YOU THINK CNN COULDN’T SINK ANY LOWER….

….we have this.

CNN’s flash poll, taken immediately after President Trump’s State of the Union Speech showed that 70% of the sample had a “very” or “somewhat” positive reaction to it – 48% in the “very” column – and just 28% reacted negatively.

70% to 28% positive?  That’s certainly good news for Mr. Trump, isn’t it?

Before you answer, here is the way the CNN website presented:

 

 

In other words, it’s not that President Trump, who has received virtually nothing but negative press from CNN and most other media for a year, got a 70% positive rating for his speech anyway, it is that other speeches did even better.

Or did they?

According to Amber Athey’s article at dailycaller.com…

“We went back to look at the State of the Union address at the beginning of a midterm election year where the president’s party was facing a lot of headwinds. Take a look at this,” CNN’s David Shelley said. “48 percent very positive reaction across the board. Barack Obama at the beginning of 2010, he had 48% very positive reaction. George W. Bush at the beginning of 2006, in his second midterms, 48 percent, very positive.”

Am I missing something here?  Is 48% “very positive” a higher number for Barack Obama and George W. Bush than it is for Donald Trump?   Or is the entire basis for calling this the lowest in 20 years that Trump, though he had exactly the same percentage of “very positive” ratings, was a bit lower in the “somewhat positive” department?

This isn’t even pathetic.  It doesn’t rise to that level.

How can anyone who calls him/herself a journalist work at CNN anymore?

  • I went and read the article and you know what it said?
    Trump’s first State Of The Union address tied Obama’s first SOTU address. Both got 48%. I don’t believe cnn published an article saying Obama had the lowest ratings in the last 12 years.
    Does cnn even realize how completely compromised they are? Do the people that take them seriously realize what complete idiots they are? How can anyone with a functioning brain have anything at all to do with that media company??? My hope is that everyone who reads that article figures out how awful cnn is and stops reading or watching them.

  • Judicial Watch Reveals Obama Officials Distributed ‘CLASSIFIED RECORDS’ To ‘Undermine’ POTUS Trump

    “These documents show the Obama State Department under John Kerry gathered and sent its own dossier of classified information on Russia to Senator Ben Cardin, a political ally in the U.S. Senate, to undermine President Trump,” said Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton in a statement.

    “Judicial Watch will pursue information on who pulled this classified information, who authorized its release, and why was it evidently dumped just days before President Trump’s inauguration,” added Fitton.

    This is the second dossier that the Obama State Department has been involved with.

  • Ken & readers, here is a story I think you will want to see.

    Man ordered to tell police if he plans to have sex
    It requires the man disclose any planned sexual activity to the police or face up to five years in prison.
    The order – which was drawn up by magistrates in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, and extended in York – reads: “You must disclose the details of any female including her name, address and date of birth.
    “You must do this at least 24 hours prior to any sexual activity taking place.”
